“The process of removing the cancer involves a technique known as total mesorectal excision, which involves a careful dissection of the rectum and its surrounding fat envelope, which contains lymph nodes that may harbor cancer spread and therefore must be removed to lower recurrence rates and to achieve cure.”
“That's why many patients undergo a surgical procedure called total mesorectal excision (TME), which removes the entire mesorectum and lymph nodes, the study authors explained.”
“Results indicated that 11 percent (128) of the patients had involvement of the circumferential resection margin, and the plane of surgery was ranked as good (mesorectal) in 52 percent”
“Moreover, 4 percent of patients in the mesorectal group had local recurrence, 7 percent of patients in the intramesorectal group, and 13 percent of patients in the muscularis propria plane group.”
“Total mesorectal excision is one of the latest advances in surgical techniques that have enhanced patient outcomes.”
“At present, only 50\% of rectal cancer surgery is done in the mesorectal plane, suggesting that a further decrease in local recurrence rates might be obtained by improving the plane of surgery achieved … [This could] be achieved through education and surgical tuition", the authors write.”
“Local recurrence occurred in 4\% of people in the mesorectal group, 7\% in the intramesorectal group and 13\% in the muscularis propria plane group.”
“At present, only 50\% of rectal cancer surgery is done in the mesorectal plane, suggesting that a further decrease in local recurrence rates might be obtained by improving the plane of surgery achieved," the researchers concluded.”
